What does "Update framework" mean?

Post by amadama »

I notice that often updates to core have "Update framework" in the description.
What does that mean?
Thanks

Probably best to think of it as "background stuff".

If you're just a user then that sort of update will likely be changes that you may never be aware of although it may facilitate future changes that are implemented that you are aware of.

One of the things that makes mister so great is that each core shared a “framework”. The framework includes code that should be the same or almost the same for each core.

Examples include the open source scaler that makes the hdmi video possible.

Code to draw the OSD.

In addition all of the virtualization of disks and I/O is implemented in the framework so that each core can read the joystick or get a rom from the Linux side without rewriting that part.
